Petra Opitz

Tends the client and consultant garden

When I go into my garden, all I do there is take care of its needs. Hoeing, sowing, watering, weeding – working with nature is a lot of fun and my garden rewards my efforts with a plentiful harvest and a sea of flowers. And what does the gardener do in the background? Actually, exactly the same thing: give clients and colleagues just what they need, when they need it, to produce a bountiful harvest and an abundance of flowers.
